The architecture of industrial style emphasizes a stripped-down infrastructure – the more exposed and raw, the better. Unfinished walls, aged brick, metal ductwork, bare windows, and exposed beams pay stylistic homage to the skeleton that supports the structure overall. Often, industrial-type floors (think concrete, wood, or other pragmatic, non-flashy surfaces) are kept bare.
Salvaged objects are those objects who are either revived to serve their original purpose or reused in another way to serve a different, yet still functional, purpose. It should come as no surprise that industrial décor features the aesthetic of utility, whether authentic or contrived. A red iron wheel centered on your dining table’s base? Absolutely chic, unassuming, and comfortable.
Furnishings that successfully inhabit an industrial styled space are pared down, fundamental, no-nonsense pieces. Clean lines and simple forms are a must. Of course, you may love the style but haven’t an inclination to perch solely atop hard metal stools for the rest of your life – that’s okay. Although industrial style embraces bare-bones, it doesn’t mean comfort is excluded altogether. Just keep padded, upholstered pieces simple, without excess frills or adornment.
